Eddie Royal Fantasy News

Friday, January 1, 2016, 6:26pm

Bears WR Eddie Royal (illness, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 17. With Royal out, Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani and Cameron Meredith figure to lead the Chicago receivers in snaps. Bellamy has the most appeal from a Sneaky Start standpoint.

Bears WR Eddie Royal (illness) did not practice Wednesday. Royal should see plenty of targets with Alshon Jeffery done for the year.

Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 16. Looks like Jeffery is out for Week 16. Jay Cutler is less appealing as a streaming play, though he’s been decent (230 yards, 1.3 TD, 17 rushing yards) in the four games without Jeffery in the lineup this year. Eddie Royal becomes a decent desperation play, though he hasn’t cracked the 50-yard mark or scored a touchdown since Week 4. Marc Mariani and Josh Bellamy probably will round out the receiving corps.

Bears WR Eddie Royal (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 16. If he can play, he should see plenty of targets with Alshon Jeffery likely out.

Bears WR Eddie Royal (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 14. It’s been a while, but Royal could make his return this week. He was pretty involved in the offense when healthy, and given the state of the Bears receiving corps, he could be thrust into a large role right away.

Bears WR Eddie Royal (knee, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 13. We’re not expecting Royal to return this week, despite the questionable tag. The Bears are really hurting at receiver with Marquess Wilson out as well.

Friday, December 4, 2015, 6:28pm

Bears TE Martellus Bennett (ribs, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 13. It looks like Bennett will make his return this week, though he’s been outplayed by Zach Miller in the last few weeks. The Bears will be without Marquess Wilson and probably Eddie Royal as well, so Bennett should see plenty of work.

Bears WR Eddie Royal (knee) missed practice again Thursday. We’re not expecting Royal to return this week. Marquess Wilson still has some deep league appeal.

Fantasy Impact:

For the Panthers, if Corey Brown is out, then Devin Funchess figures to be a Sneaky Start once again. With Zach Ertz and Ryan Mathews out, Brent Celek and Darren Sproles both get a bump. Celek is a top 10 play this week in a nice matchup with the Lions. Calvin Johnson is questionable but is expected to play. With Martellus Bennett sidelined, Zachary Miller is also a Sneaky Start at the tight end position. He has been very involved the last few weeks and the Packers just gave up a boatload of fantasy points to Kyle Rudolph last week. Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte are both expected to play, but the Bears have been very devious when it comes to handing out injury information. Don't be shocked if either is inactive on Thursday evening. If they both return, it will obviously put a dent in the upside of Marquess Wilson and Jeremy Langford, respectively.
